Anne Gilmore wore happy hats at Latham Centers in her position as Administrative Assistant to the Director of Children’s Services. Back in January, fifteen colleagues at Latham Centers said a formal “farewell and good luck” at a low-key retirement party.
Tributes to Anne – from the Clinical Department to Senior Administration – highlighted her efficiency and skill in her role, and especially her kindness. Below are just some of their words:
“I always enjoyed working with Anne. She is quick-witted and on the ball, and takes care of business.” –Clinical Team
“About a year ago I was in an accident. Anne contacted me a couple of times to make sure I had everything I needed, she even helped to organize a grocery shopping trip for me. She was just so nice, and I could tell how much she cared. She was concerned about my well-being. I had NEVER met Anne and it meant and still means so much that she reached out to me. Thank you, Anne, for EVERYTHING you have done at Latham.” -Children’s Program Education Team
“I want to say congratulations on your retirement. You have been a mentor to me personally for 13 years. You’ve also been a mentor not only to the staff, but also the students. You will be greatly missed. Happy retirement.” -Children’s Program Director
“Happy retirement, Anne. We are really going to miss you here.” -Children’s Program Education Team
“Anne is simply the most amazing person I have ever met. She always has a kind word, manages so many things, and does it well. Anne, you will be greatly missed but I hope that you enjoy retirement and all the things you will be able to do.” -Nursing Team
Thanks so much for your support, commitment, and your wealth of knowledge that you brought to Latham. You will be so missed.” -Admissions Team
“Anne is the master of coordinating everything “behind the scenes” so that Latham can run as it does. She has a hand in all departments. This is a case where we don’t know what we have until it’s gone. Thank you, Anne, for everything you have done for us.” -Clinical Team
“I remember my very first day at Latham Centers and meeting you. You have been a salvation for most of us who work at Latham Centers. I would see you in your office counseling all of the staff at the end of a tough work day. You made my first two years so doable and enjoyable.” -Senior Administration
Thank you so much, Anne, from EVERYONE at Latham Centers. HAPPY RETIREMENT!!
